Iraqi vicar pleased with welcomePetersfield Big School (PBS), received a visit from the vicar of Baghdad this week.
Sheik Yajosticks arrived at the school in a large black limosine and on arrival was ushered into the newly refurbished PBS reception suite, complete with bar and massage facilities.
The cleric's welcome was put together by girls from the dance faculty and was a modern take on the dance of the seven veils.
The holy man did preach very briefly to a number of students who were forced into the main hall to listen to him, but it seems likely the primary reason for his visit was to discuss the oil that was struck beneath the school site last year.
It is thought that PBS is trying to forge lucrative links with the Middle East, without drawing unwanted attention to the talks.
If Sheik Yagosticks was not here to see the oil, it would be difficult to explain why he arrived with a hard hat under his arm.
